Spirit Week, which runs from October 19 – 24 this year, is a glorious time at Walled Lake Central. It is a great opportunity for students to show their school spirit and Central pride.
Student Council President Noah Bloom said, “The Council and I are so excited for each grade to represent one of four of the greatest bands of all time! Battle of the Bands is such a fun theme to work with.”
The week will kick off on Monday with Class T-Shirt Day. T-shirts can be purchased at lunch for $10. Shirts feature rock bands in keeping with the week’s theme.
Sophomore Jack Gibson said, “The T-shirt designs this year are so cool, the designers did a great job.”
Monday will also include the annual Field Day competition. Events this year will include the beloved toilet races.
As in past years, Tuesday will be Tropical Tuesday, like the year before. “Tropical Tuesday is cool for football games, but a Pajama Day would be awesome,” said senior Nicole Langan.
On Wednesday, students will celebrate Jersey Day where they can represent their favorite sports team.
Thursday is Mom and Dad Day. Some students aren’t really sure how to dress for this particular day. Senior Mia Rubin explained her confusion, “My mom and I share clothes, so dressing like her would be dressing normally.”
And Friday is the beloved Unity Day when all classes dress in maize and blue to celebrate at the Pep Assembly in advance of the Homecoming Football Game against Haslett High School at 7 pm. Junior Emma Erfourth said she “Can’t wait for the game, it’s going to be so hype.”
Although the students appreciate Student Council’s hard work in making Spirit Week happen, many of them are not too thrilled with the choices for spirit days. Most of them are feeling this way because they aren’t sure how to dress up for each occasion.
Many students have tried to suggest new ideas both on twitter and in person, senior Averee Herman says: “I found some great spirit ideas, such as: Pajama Day, Hippie/Hipster Day, Camo-Out, and Dress Up/Fancy Day.”
Regardless of the disagreement, Central students are thrilled to have an opportunity to be able to support their school, especially unity day, which has become a tradition that everyone has come to love.
